Plumber's Butt ... LOL

Sunday, July 22, 2012      6 comments

I have another non-scale victory to share! I put on a pair of denim shorts to go to the grocery store today and not only were they sliding down as I walked around, but they were taking my underwear with them! Time to either get a belt or t... Read more

Success is ...

Saturday, July 21, 2012      9 comments

Making a plan and making it stick! Went to my social event last night as planned, despite the less than optimal weather. I thought our riverboat ride might be cancelled, but the rain slowed enough that we could still go. I avoided all of th... Read more

What's Your Weekend Game Plan?

Friday, July 20, 2012      3 comments

I'm celebrating the fact that it's Friday. I had thought about taking the day off, but when I heard the weather forecast and learned it would be raining and not all that nice, I decided to work. During the summers I work until 1 on Fridays (and ... Read more

How long should we work out?

Thursday, July 19, 2012      5 comments

Last night, I believe I had a very efficient 35-40 min workout. It was my group training night and there are 3 of us in my group. We warmed up for 5 mins on the treadmill, and then worked chest & back, more cardio, then biceps and triceps, more ... Read more

Down 9 lbs but UP in so many ways!

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      6 comments

When I was younger, it was easy to drop 9 lbs in a matter of a few weeks. The first time I tried WW, I remember losing 8 lbs the first week. But the 9 lbs I've lost over the past ... Read more

In the Zone!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      6 comments

I'm beginning to achieve that "in the zone" feeling when I'm working out. It's a great feeling, somewhat hard to describe. It's that point just beyond any point I've reached previously, where my body is working hard, but not too hard. It's ... Read more

Buy One Dinner ... Get One Free!

Friday, July 13, 2012      4 comments

I'm celebrating a non-scale victory tonight and wanted to share! Last night I enjoyed dinner on the patio of a local restaurant with my DD. She had an interview in Harrisburg, PA (just under 2 hours from here) at what she believes is her #1... Read more

Tendonitis

Wednesday, July 11, 2012      5 comments

Last night I didn't exercise. I was having some pain beginning behind my right ankle and wrapping around my heel, about 2-3" up from the bottom of my heel. Sure felt like tendonitis to me. How do I know that? Because I suffered through Achilles ... Read more

This is Week #5 at the Gym

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      4 comments

I signed up for the 8-week program at the Y in early June and this week marks my 5th week of working out. It's a love/hate relationship. I hate getting off my butt to go, but I love it the moment I start my warm up on the treadmill. At the begin... Read more

Dining Alone :)

Sunday, July 08, 2012      7 comments

I was craving alone time last night, so it was just me and Aldo for the afternoon and evening. While shopping at farmers' market and the grocery store, I planned a healthy meal -- it's so easy to not fuss for myself when I'm alone. I made b... Read more

My Friday Night

Saturday, July 07, 2012      5 comments

I bumped into a friend last Sunday who I haven't seen in a long time and she suggested we have dinner soon. We put our calendars together and came up with last night. It's funny, in the past whenever we've gone out, we've driven around in circle... Read more

One Month on SP!

Friday, July 06, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday I celebrated one month on SP. I'm happy for all that I've achieved during the first 4 weeks and look forward to my second month! I lost 6.5 lbs, which isn't going to break any records, I'm sure -- but I can feel it, I can see it, and ... Read more

Exercising on Mondays

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      4 comments

When I left work at 4:45 yesterday, I was tired and hungry. More than anything, I just wanted an evening at home. It was a busy weekend and by the time I made dinner for me and DD, exercising was the LAST thing on my mind ... or was it ... ... Read more

Ordination Today

Saturday, June 30, 2012      4 comments

Last fall, I traveled to Italy for 10 days for what (so far) has been the trip of my life. I spent 7 of the 10 days in Rome. I traveled with a group of 25, led by my young pastor, who had lived and studied in Rome for 4 years. We were able to do... Read more

Just gave that last piece of cake a nasty gesture...LOL

Thursday, June 28, 2012      4 comments

Just went to the kitchen to get my afternoon snack, a fat free sugar free chocolate pudding and there sits the last piece of cake on the counter. I laughed at it and then gave it a nasty hand gesture. Cake, you are dead to me ... insignific... Read more
